Happy International Workers Day, an annual event celebrated in most of the world. In the US May 1st is known as Loyalty Day (formerly Americanization Day).
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2016, as Loyalty Day. This Loyalty Day, I call upon all the people of the United States to join in support of this national observance, whether by displaying the flag of the United States or pledging allegiance to the Republic for which it stands.
